You are right.
Well i'll be. I thought i knew my history. Your research is accurate. The city was liberated from the K.u.k.M. in 1878 and Serbia was founded in 1882.
At the time the painting was made, the city was called Nándorfehérvár, and was part of the K.u.k.M.

re not Belgrade
Interesting-, however my research says quote -
On 22 July 1456, the Christian Hungarian armies defending Nándorfehérvár (now Belgrade) were victorious against the forces of Turkish Sultan Mehmed II following a battle that lasted over two weeks, and as a result delayed the Ottoman Empire’s attempts to conquer Europe for a period of seventy years. Never before had a Christian army achieved a victory of this scale against the Sultan’s forces.
